I recently saw The Wild in the theater with my 4-year old, and I came away finding it lacking. The Wild is an uninspired rehash of several movies - most notably Madagascar. How they could possibly come up with a movie so similar is beyond me - not that Madagascar was anything to emulate. The animation is very good, but like MGSCR, the characters are uninspired. I also thought it had shades of Nemo - the dad trying to find his son. Just a bit too drab and unoriginal for my taste. My four-year-old liked it - but couldn't tell me much she liked about it, and didn't talk much about it, so I would say it was 5 out of 10 for her too.
